The Night Torn Mad With Footsteps
Charles Bukowski

Hello, Again – Bukowski is one of those writers you think you outgrow only to find, years later, that now you get it, now you’ve finally lived long enough to really understand what they’re saying.

“my god,” some will say, “all Chinaski writes about
are cats!”

“my god,” some used to say, “all Chinaski writes about
are whores!”

but these complainers will still keep buying my
books: they love the way I irritate

Ah, yes. Love, indeed.
